Business Testimonials

I asked Monkey Puzzle to deliver the NLP Practitioner Certification in my organisation in 2015 to support my team in delivering a continuous improvement programme which involved lots of stakeholder management, negotiations and cultural change management. We were very skilled at the process and technical aspects and wanted to get equally skilled at the people side of things. It was fantastic, enlightening and truly experiential. The learnings are totally applicable to all aspects of both work and personal life. This culminates in a real ability to understand both yourself and the behaviours of those you interact with. Karen and John have an amazing wealth of applicable knowledge and their delivery style is engaging and conducive to a relaxed atmosphere. Karen and John are excellent coaches with a fantastic ability to be both nurturing and stretching. A huge thank you.Kevin Rendle. Head of Operational Excellence at Aldermore Bank.


We commissioned Monkey Puzzle to undertake bespoke training for part of the team involved in our Cultural and Behavioural Change programme. They really understood the brief and importantly designed and delivered to it exactly, whilst adding inspiration and true insight. They met individual learning needs at the same time too, giving the people in the team a real boost of passion and purpose. If you're serious about organisational change then you're in the right hands with Monkey Puzzle, I'd say.John McConnachie, Monouthshire County Council. Principle Training Manager.
John has been working with us as a leadership coach for over a year and I have already seen a significant change in the people that he's been working with. John is different from other coaches I've worked with in the past. Through his business knowledge, NLP and therapeutic approach to the whole person, he really makes a difference to their self-awareness, confidence and ultimately business results. John has a truly holistic approach and is a very warm and engaging person who is great fun to work with. I'm delighted to be working with Monkey Puzzle training and look forward to working in partnership to continually develop our leadership team.Pauline Buckley, Cath Kidston Ltd.


From a senior management point of view, we noticed the difference in how the management teams became more proactive, recognising that if something was not working they could do something about it and gaining the self-confidence to act after the training with John and Karen. The process of working with the teams as a group meant they supported each other and this support has continued on into the workplace. The cost to the charity was a gamble, as funding has been cut, but the positive results have meant the gamble has more than paid off.Claire Hayward, CEO of Freeways.
